Add code to support debugging threaded process.
1. Add tm_lwpid into kse_thr_mailbox to indicate which kernel
thread current user thread is running on. Add tm_dflags into
kse_thr_mailbox, the flags is written by debugger, it tells
UTS and kernel what should be done when the process is being
debugged, current, there two flags TMDF_SSTEP and TMDF_DONOTRUNUSER.
TMDF_SSTEP is used to tell kernel to turn on single stepping,
or turn off if it is not set.
TMDF_DONOTRUNUSER is used to tell kernel to schedule upcall
whenever possible, to UTS, it means do not run the user thread
until debugger clears it, this behaviour is necessary because
gdb wants to resume only one thread when the thread's pc is
at a breakpoint, and thread needs to go forward, in order to
avoid other threads sneak pass the breakpoints, it needs to remove
breakpoint, only wants one thread to go. Also, add km_lwp to
kse_mailbox, the lwp id is copied to kse_thr_mailbox at context
switch time when process is not being debugged, so when process
is attached, debugger can map kernel thread to user thread.
2. Add p_xthread to proc strcuture and td_xsig to thread structure.
p_xthread is used by a thread when it wants to report event
to debugger, every thread can set the pointer, especially, when
it is used in ptracestop, it is the last thread reporting event
will win the race. Every thread has a td_xsig to exchange signal
with debugger, thread uses TDF_XSIG flag to indicate it is reporting
signal to debugger, if the flag is not cleared, thread will keep
retrying until it is cleared by debugger, p_xthread may be
used by debugger to indicate CURRENT thread. The p_xstat is still
in proc structure to keep wait() to work, in future, we may
just use td_xsig.
3. Add TDF_DBSUSPEND flag, the flag is used by debugger to suspend
a thread. When process stops, debugger can set the flag for
thread, thread will check the flag in thread_suspend_check,
enters a loop, unless it is cleared by debugger, process is
detached or process is existing. The flag is also checked in
ptracestop, so debugger can temporarily suspend a thread even
if the thread wants to exchange signal.
4. Current, in ptrace, we always resume all threads, but if a thread
has already a TDF_DBSUSPEND flag set by debugger, it won't run.
